SPOKANE, Wash. – Northern Arizona women's golf signee Savana Bezdicek shot a two-over par 146 at the Esmeralda Golf Course Wednesday to tie for the medalist honors at the Washington State 3A Girls State Championship.
Bezdicek tied with her sister, Sierra, at 146 but lost in a sudden-death playoff. The sister duo helped Mt. Spokane High School to finish second overall in the team standings.
"I had no idea it was going to go down like this," said Savana to The Spokesman Review. "When neither one of us was in the final group after yesterday…we just wanted to go after some good solid rounds today and it just so happened that we tied, which is so weird."
Savana, who won the 2010 state title, shot rounds of 74 and 72. She will enroll at NAU this fall.
